Coconut Oil (virgin or organic)
I know this is far from a recipe but coconut is becoming very well known for it's ability to soothe and heal eczema. It penetrates deeply in to the skin and absorbs very easily. It aids in the functioning of your skin's immune system, fights fungal infections, helps heal and repair skin cells and relieves dryness, flaking and scaling skin. Coconut is inexpensive and fairly easy to obtain and can be used as natural eczema treatment all on it's own.

Milk and Oatmeal Bath Powder
Basically you just need equal parts oatmeal and powdered milk. Mix ingredients together well. While bath is running add 1/2 - 3/4 cup of oatmeal/milk mixture. Adding a few drops of the following essential oils will prove even more beneficial and soothing to your eczema. Suggested essential oils are Lavender Oil, Chamomile Oil, Patchouli Oil, Tea Tree Oil, Bergamot Oil and Geranium Oil. (Never stay in bath water for more than 20 minutes and of course do not use hot water. Doing so can have the opposite effect of what you are trying to achieve. Be sure to apply a good eczema lotion or cream after your bath to seal in moisture and help heal.)
Always remember to do a small patch test before fully applying to ensure you have no allergies to any of the ingredients.
